Annapurna base camp trek also is also known as Annapurna Century Trek, One of the most classic, short, and medium grade trek something that everyone should try once. This trekking route takes you by foot to some of the most famous farming villages, landscapes, River valley, and 2 of the 8 tallest peaks in the world. Annapurna Base Camp lies at the altitude of 4,130m / 13,550 ft above sea level.  MBC and ABC offer stunning natural panorama, incredible views of all Annapurna Himalayan Range with everlasting Annapurna Glassier. We also pass by the stunning Poon Hill at the altitude of 3210 meters; the most impressive Mountain View spots in Nepal.  Poon Hill offers a Remarkable natural panorama, enchanting views of Mt Annapurna South (7,219m / 23,684 ft), Mt Dhaulagiri (8,167m / 26,794 ft), Mt Machhapuchhre (6,997m / 22,956), Mt Hiunchuli (6,441/ 21,132 ft), and many more with a sunrise view in the morning. You would not find this kind of perfect naturally blended and blessed trekking trip all around the world. 

Your trek starts from Kathmandu with a beautiful flight/ ride to the lake city Pokhara. Then a 1:30 hour drive will bring you to the trekking starting point Nayapul. From Nayapul we start our trek through beautiful rice, maize, and millet farms of locals.  The main trail leads to Birethanti after which we reach Sudami. The next stop is Hile which eventually leads us to Tikhedhunga on the bank of Bharaudi Khola. Climbing through the 3500 stone steps, booming rhododendron forests, and the old oak trees; we aim for Ulleri that is at the height of 2050m. A final push to reach Nangethanti, and a few more hours of huffing and puffing will bring us to Ghorepani.

You may have often heard people saying that after you die, you see the heavenly light, but you won’t have to go such lengths as dying to see that heavenly light. At the Poon hill (3,210m / 10,531 ft), as the sun peeks out from the majestic mountains, you will see the light. You will see the rays from heaven shine right at you. Mountains including Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Fishtail, Annapurna I, and many more will shine along with the morning sun. This journey then takes us to the absolutely beautiful and stunning village of Tadapani and the next day, A steep descent takes us to the Kimrong Khola. After another steep ascent from Kimrong Khola, it’s a gentle walk to Chhomrong.

Chhomrong is a beautiful farming village located on the lap of the giant Annapurna massive. We descend via 2,500 stone steps and cross the bridge above Chhomrong Khola. From here it is an uphill climb to Sinuwa. Next, we pass through a beautiful forest to Kuldihar followed by an easy downhill walk to Bamboo. We pass through a bamboo forest which is damp and cold then ascends steadily with a few steep sections. It is only after reaching Himalaya Hotel that the forest opens up and we are out in the sun again with astounding views of the glacial river below. It is a steep climb up through a much drier forest before reaching Hinku Cave. The vegetation is sparser, allowing magical views of the valley, the river below, and the sheer rock-face cliffs above with bands of wispy waterfalls. Then to dream Annapurna Base Camp.

Climb gently through a river bed then over a steep trail over to the mountainside. The hike from Bagar to Machhapuchhre Base Camp is somewhat strenuous. From Machhapuchhre base camp, we get excellent views of the majestic Machhapuchhre along with Mt. Hiunchuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Gandharvachuli, and Gangapurna which is certainly a rewarding experience. The vegetation disappears on our way to ABC and the path widens as we enter the Annapurna sanctuary. From here, we get sensational views of the near-vertical south face of Annapurna towering above us. The sanctuary boasts of a dynamic view without anything impeding the 360-degree panorama. From the base camp, we again get to savor mesmerizing views of the Machhapuchhre, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Hiunchuli, and many other peaks.

From the Annapurna base camp, we retrace our steps to Bamboo. This is mostly downhill, so it shouldn’t be very difficult. Besides, we will always have the company of the extraordinary landscape to cheer us up. from Bamboo, it is an uphill trek to Sinewa followed by a downhill walk to Chhomrong Khola. Then we climb the stone steps to Chhomrong. The trail then descends to Jhinu Danda, where we will be resting for the night. This day we will have an opportunity to enjoy the hot springs which is just a 15-20 minute downhill walk from Jhinu Danda to recover your weary muscles in the natural hot springs. Walking downhill from Jhinu Danda to the new bridge and Nepali flat we will then reach Syaulibazar after 3 hours. Out trek finally comes to an end after we reach Nayapul, from where we drive back to Pokhara. This whole trip will always remain in the most sacred part of your heart, you will always cherish these memories and you will want to make more of them. Happy Trekking

Best Time for Annapurna Base Camp Trek

For the Annapurna Base Camp Trek, Spring (March, April, May) and Autumn (September, October, November) are the best months. The air, freshly washed by the monsoon rain, is crystal clear, stunning mountain scenery, and the weather is still comfortably warm. Although Annapurna Base Camp Trek can be taken during winter and monsoon too, but the cold can be bitter and dangerous at high altitudes, trekking trails above Deurali village meters are usually blocked by heavy snowfall. And the trails can be slippery due to the monsoon rain, Nepal’s famous Juka (leeches) are an un-pleasant feature of the wet season, but with care, trekking can still be possible and there are certainly fewer trekkers on the trail.

Poon Hill and ABC trek I initially went trekking with Rajan on the Poon Hill circuit and enjoyed it so much I immediately embarked on the ABC trek straight afterwards. He is an unbeatable guide - kind, warm, caring and extremely knowledgeable - and made my time in Nepal completely unforgettable. I was traveling alone and felt so lucky to have found such a great companion and guide for my adventures. I can't recommend his company highly enough.

Annapurna Base Camp trek- amazing experience! Two friends and I did the 10 day Annapurna Base Camp trek with Rajan in 2013. He was amazing. He knew the area well, was calm, had a great sense of humour. He was a great asset to the trip, and I'd recommend him to any friends interested in visiting Nepal.
